Chouriço (Chorizo) with Red Wine and Capsicums

    10 hours 15 minutes

    Chouriço is simply the Portuguese chorizo. All the better if you can find Portuguese chouriço for this dish, but the more common Spanish chorizo will work just fine. Serve over mash or rice.

    1. In a slow cooker, combine the sausage, capsicums, onion, tomato purée, wine, water and garlic. Mix well. Cover, and set on Low. Cook for 8 hours. Uncover the pot, and cook an additional 2 hours to allow some of the liquid to evaporate.

    Don't have a slow cooker?

    Simply simmer everything on the hob in a large covered casserole for 2 to 3 hours instead. Uncover during the last 30 minutes.

    Easy recipe and tastes delicious!!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. As far as Chourico and capsicums recipes go this is great! Being part portuguese it's almost a staple at any family function. I gave it 4 stars only because I find green capsicums to be VERY overwhelming in this recipe. I made it with red capsicums and it was perfect!  -  29 Sep 2008


    This is one of the best slow cooker recipes I have tried. I made this to go over pasta so I didn’t reduce the liquid as instructed and it was perfect. I admit I was a little apprehensive about not browning the chourico but there is no need to because the appearance and taste was wonderful.  -  18 Aug 2012
